Benefits of Pre-Back Surgery Manchester Chiropractic Care and Exercise

Before undergoing back surgery, Manchester back pain sufferers will do well to undergo chiropractic care and exercise. Research keeps documenting the value of non-surgical care for back pain relief. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is the chiropractic care office in Manchester for both!


Self-care is often proposed as first-line treatment for back pain patients. If that doesn’t work, adding non-drug therapy for acute low back pain – spinal manipulation – and for chronic or subacute back pain – spinal manipulation, intensive interdisciplinary rehab, exercise, acupuncture, massage, yoga, cognitive behavioral therapy - is promoted by medical physician organizations like the American College of Physicians and American Pain Society. (1) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries specializes in a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment known as Cox® Technic to relieve back pain that may well help Manchester back pain sufferers evade back surgery and control their back pain more independently.


Back pain sufferers want to help themselves as much as possible. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries knows this. Exercise is shown valuable for non-surgical pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The proper type of exercise is vital, so we will discuss what’s right for you! Maybe Pilates would be your exercise of choice. A study of chronic musculoskeletal pain patients who tried a Pilates-based exercise program discovered that the pain patients better functioned and coped with their pain condition more independently and effectively. They performed better at work, took pleasure in hobbies more, were motivated to keep exercising, did more to manage their own pain conditions independently. These, in turn, motivated them to enjoy a healthier lifestyle. (3) These benefits came without back surgery.


Researchers set up a trial of exercise for back pain patients headed to back surgery. They explained the back pain condition to the patients thoroughly. They set up exercise programs for each patient to perform. They discovered that back pain patients who underwent this pre-surgery program of description and exercise gained benefit in several ways: The back pain sufferers felt better exercising than being inactive while waiting for surgery. The back pain sufferers’ mood got better as they exercised. They had time to mull over their treatment and lifestyle options. Even patients who did not describe symptom improvement reacted well to this program as they thought themselves more confident in being able to do some self-management of their pain. (4) These are all beneficial outcomes Manchester back pain patients find in their chiropractic care at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries. Control not cure is a realistic goal when coping with back pain.
